    Simply incredible! It takes imagination to put a strategy in place to pull this off!

    Brought back great memories catching Marlin in Cabo. Unfortunately, not on the fly but trolling feathers. Still a kick however! Great memorabilia!


    pretty epic footage and some real wild marlin. Amazing they could stay on #12 pound test. Almost as tough as a big calico.
